This research was aimed at proving validity of IOF’s One-Minute Osteoporosis Risk Test and evaluating the relation between structural-functional state of bone according to the ultrasound densitometry and results of IOF’s One-Minute Osteoporosis Risk Test for postmenopausal women.
Materials and methods
We’ve examined 147 postmenopausal women aged 50-69 years (mean age 59,8 ±0,7). Structural-functional state of bone was evaluated by means of an ultrasound bone densitometer (“Achilles+”). The speed of sound (SOS, m/s), broadband ultrasound attenuation (BUA, dB/MHz) and a calculated “Stiffness” index (SI, %), T and Z-range were measured. IOF’s One-Minute Osteoporosis Risk Test was translated into Ukrainian.
Significant correlation was found between positive answer to question 2 (“Have you broken a bone after a minor bump or fall?”) and SOS (r = -0,17; р = 0,042), BUA ( r = -0,28; р = 0,0005), SI (r = -0,25; р = 0,002), Z- range (r = -0,26; р = 0,015); between positive answer to question 3 (“Have you taken corticosteroid tablets for more than 3 months”) and SOS (r = -0,16; р = 0,047), BUA ( r = -0,29; р = 0,0003), SI (r = -0,21; р < 0,000001), and between positive answer to question 4 (“Have you lost more than 3 cm (just over 1 inch) in height?”) and the following indexes of structural-functional state of bone: SOS (r = -0,32; р < 0,00001), BUA ( r = -0,27; р = 0,00096), SI (r = – 0,36; р < 0,000001), Z- range (r = -0,27; р = 0,0015).
Application of IOF’s One-Minute Osteoporosis Risk Test gives an opportunity to determine structural-functional changes of bone. Among the test questions, the most reliable and informative as for postmenopausal women proved to be questions 2 (“Have you broken a bone after a minor bump or fall “), 3 (“Have you taken corticosteroid tablets for more than 3 months”) and 4 (“Have you lost more than 3 cm (just over 1 inch) in height?).
